Review of The Promise of Narrative Theology: Recovering the Gospel in the Church

West, Cornel

George Stroup's The Promise of Narrative Theology is an exemplary text in this area with a Barthian slant. What is distinctive about this text is not its smooth hypnotic prose which is palpable to a general readership nor its Barthian reformulations in a narrative mode. Rather its distinctiveness lies in its professed provincialism, in both its content and scope. It not only speaks to church people; it also speaks exclusively about the church and its practices. Its central problematic is the crisis in Christian identity.
